What I Do
I design and maintain websites for supporters of POLICE, FIRE, EMS, DISPATCHERS, SECURITY, and the MILITARY. I design for associations, labor unions, federations, foundations, the Fraternal Order of Police, Police Benevolent Associations, Patriot Guard Riders, and much more! I offer these public safety and other organizations over two decades of design experience and build strong, trusting relationships. My first step is evaluating your organization’s needs and goals. I work in public safety, so I know your organizations have unique specializations and challenges. I am prepared to design with quality and confidence to help your organization grow.
Aesthetically pleasing, accessible designs to help the people you serve find everything they need. Each website I design is custom to your organization. Your website will also have a version designed specifically for mobile and tablet devices. I will ensure that your website has all the capabilities and applications your organization needs to reach its goals and serve your patrons.
I have set up my design experience strategically, with several goals in mind. I want your organization to be successful with the least amount of work for you. I want your organization to grow and expand. I want the design experience to be stress-free and take the least amount of your time as possible. I want to enable you to make strategic choices focused on visitor experience, value, and proudly representing our public safety and military.
I can include as much or as little social media as you prefer. I can do social media buttons, allow people to share your website to their social media timeline, allow visitors to share your content to their Pinterest boards, and even compile a Twitter feed to display on your website. I use Google analytics to improve your digital presence.
I help with any content you want, including text, images, and audio visual. I can give your website a booking system, an online store, a blog, fillable forms, files, a community forum, and members-only secure pages. I also design posters, brochures, logos, manage social media platforms, and make it easy for you to do email marketing and newsletters.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) uses search phrases and keywords to target your site visitors. It simply means that your website will be included in the first page of search engine results. SEO is critical for marketing and increasing the number of visitors to your site.
I will design and then maintain your website. Need additional changes? New content? Updated content? New features? Your annual contract will also include unlimited changes at no additional cost to you.

What My Clients Are Saying
Minnesota Fraternal Order of Police
I've seen, firsthand, the quality of work and level of service RD Designs LLC produces time and again. I challenge you to find a company more willing to work with your group from start to finish while still holding the values of first responder groups as a priority. I am proud to endorse Ryan and his work.
Backing the Blue Line
Ryan is no joke so fast I often times tell him “you don't have to do this right now.” He’s so open to our ideas, and shares his professional suggestions as well. Not every dude would step up to the plate to work with 2k women without fear, but Ryan does so, awesomely. Those of us at Backing the Blue Line couldn’t appreciate you more Ryan, thank you!
Lodge 13, Cops and Kids
My experience with RD Designs is beyond excellent. We received a website that was professional and contained everything we wanted. Each and every page tells the story about our Cops & Kids charity. Ryan was highly professional in all of our dealings. Most important was his fast responses to any issues or content we wanted to be included. Our 800+ member lodge near Atlanta Georgia is truly impressed with what Ryan created for us. It will help tremendously to promote our programs for kids. Thank you for everything you did for us.
In 2007, I started designing websites as a hobby. In 2015, I decided I wanted to help public safety organizations build their online presence. I created RD Designs and started expanding my business. I am now a Wix Certified Expert. I design with a purpose — to give back to public safety organizations and their supporters.
I was born and raised in Virginia, Minnesota. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Cybersecurity with a major in Cybercrime Investigations and Digital Forensics from Syracuse University, New York. I also have an Associate’s in Applied Science degree in Law Enforcement from Hibbing Community and Technical College.
I am currently a sergeant, assigned to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office - Patrol Unit in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have been employed here since June of 2000. I have also been employed as a part-time police officer for the University of Minnesota Police Department since 2009 where I work at sporting events, concerts, and other special events.
I am an active member of the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Supervisor’s Association, the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association, the Fraternal Order of Police, and the High Technology Crime Investigation Association.
I look forward to partnering with you. Stay safe!
